Product received in consideration of review. All opinions are my own.
Be thankful is something we try to teach our kids year round, and not just at Thanksgiving. When we received the opportunity (a few years ago) to review Give Thanks to the Lord, a children’s picture book written by New York Times bestselling author Karma Wilson and Illustrated by Amy June Bates, we were happy to do so. It has remained a family favorite for over three years now!
Give Thanks to the Lord
FROM THE PUBLISHER
“The table makes a lovely sight. The food is good, it tastes just right. I savor every, single bite. I feel so full of love tonight.”
Celebrate the season in this heartwarming story that references Psalm 92 in tender rhyme from award-winning author Karma Wilson. Told from the point of view of one young member of an extended family, Give Thanks to the Lord celebrates joy of all kinds, from the arrival of distant relatives to a cozy house already filled with merriment, to apple cider and the delicious smells of roasting turkey and baking pie. And just when your mouth is watering, sit down and join a thankful child in prayer, praising God for “food and fun and family, all the wonderful things I see.”
Give Thanks to the Lord tells a heartwarming story, based on Psalm 92, about Thanksgiving.
It starts off with, “It is good to give thanks to the Lord!”
From there, it is written in rhyme. The kids love the sing song rhythm of the story. “The table makes a lovely sight. The food is good, it tastes just right. I savor every, single bite. I feel so full of love tonight.”
“It is good to give thanks to the Lord!” is repeated throughout the text, and the story is written from the point of view of the little boy.
The book beautifully illustrates the importance of being thankful for everything, from our apple cider to our family, friends and fun. With the repeated refrain of “It is good to give thanks to the Lord,” it serves as a great reminder that we need to thank God for all the wonderful things we have.
Mister and Sister both enjoy this book, and Sister especially likes the illustrations. While the story is geared toward Thanksgiving, I think it serves as a beautiful reminder to be thankful any time of the year.
